Here's Dr. Lavelle's lesson on naming compounds, hope this helps! https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/wp-conten ... pounds.pdf
The suffix -ide is used for the naming of common anions. For example, Cl-1 is named "chloride," and S2- is named "sulfide." However, as Lavelle stated in lecture on Friday, when naming coordination compounds, you drop the -ide from the anion name and add the suffix -o. Therefore, in a coordination compound, chloride becomes "chloro" and sulfide becomes "sulfo." This notation is only used in coordination compounds.
